Sooo...the mighty gumshoe board feels a bit slow today. *Bob the Builder voice* Can we fix it? Yes we can!

Got a skeleton pounding on your closet? A secret in the attic? A monkey (no, not precious Bobo...and not the raging back hair you try to pass off as a Bonobo backpack either) on your back?

Let it all out, boo.

K, I'll start with a few (true) examples.

When I was 16, I robbed the house belonging to to heir of a pickle dynasty.

I used to steal Volkswagen signs to be more like one of the Beastie Boys.

I have bought more than one kind of deodorant in the same day, on the advice of a friend.

I salivate a little whenever I walk by a hot dog vendor.

I totally car-megeddoned a pigeon last month.

Sometimes, I find Bob Sagat funny.

I'm Canadian and I really don't care about hockey.

Plus, I covet my neighbor's ox every day.

I love calamari. Does that count? :)

It's probably time I got this off my chest.

I talk to my suspects during my cases.

It ranges all the way from 'Nooo, you *can't* say you were with the sodding Librarian as well!' to 'Thank you, that was the perfect answer, you wonderful man, have a cigar'. With stuff in between.

*wonders if that rings any bells with anyone else round here or whether it's just her...*

I have quite an intense Octopus phobia.

I am 27, Nickelodeon is my favorite channel and I miss “Are You Afraid of the Dark”!

I have watched the movie “The Burbs” over 300 times and can recite every line from it.

I rip the cotton part of Q-Tips off to dig in my ears. (They get very itchy!)

I am obsessed with anything dealing with the paranormal.

I HATE romantic gestures and PDA grosses me out.

Oh, and when I was younger, I sprayed almost a whole can of Pledge into my brothers eyes.

*twirls a can of Pledge and puts it back in her holster*

Intrigued - PDA? Googling it didn't seem to bring up anything that would fit that statement! :)

You are correct SS. I think it's nasty to watch others make-out, yet I love watching those VH1 dating shows. Hmmm....

Cordy, I'm with you. I, too, talk to my suspects.

Thankfully, no one else is in the house when I do that...

Been a while since I've been to this thread. ;)

Okay, let's see what I haven't already mentioned...

I hate this generation but love Family Guy (mostly for the song-and-dance sequences).

I identify more with boys than girls (yet I'm a girl).

I'm terrible at talking to people.

I chew paper in the mornings instead of gum.

I like to tell people I never cry though that is clearly false.

I hate freshman yet I'm in love with one.

I once took two free ice cream sandwiches at lunch when we were only supposed to get one each.

I disco dance in the library at school.

I flip off any kissing couples at the movie theater, be they on the screen or in seats in front of me.

I can breathe like Darth Vader.

Anais Nin -- I'm sixteen and STILL can't ride a bike. Tried very unsuccessfully last summer. ;)

I laugh at Jack's fate in Titanic just to tick my romantically-minded sister off.

My favorite films are mostly war films and my friends think I'm crazy because of it.

I throw fits when my friends pull my hair right after eating chicken nuggets... a very radical vegetarian.

I only use the TV set to play my exercise DVDs.

I once had a complete fit at camp because I couldn't go to Narnia and see King Peter.

I yell every time I talk about movies.

When I was young, I was mad at my sister and drew a fuzzball picture, depicting her, and named it "Hairy Perri."

I know all the words to Mack the Knife except for the ones Bobby Darin didn't enunciate clearly enough.

All for now!

Anais, I to this day, still cannot ride a bike..and have no desire to!

I can just about stay on a bike, but not really in a straight line. Not a good idea in traffic, or anywhere where there are other people, or on a narrow path - let's face it, just not a good idea!

Some friends once made me go for a bike ride down some dark country lanes on Halloween. Every time I stopped, which was often, the chain fell off and we had to spend several minutes putting it back on, while wondering nervously what the eerie noises coming from behind the hedge were...
